We want a style that evoke banknotes, old style post stamps, coat of arms. Basically, engraving. You can check the design of "Don Papa rum" where you clearly see the "engraving" effect of the illustrations. We would like to showcase different symbols, animals, plants of the country. The Coconut tree, the pirogue, volcano (mount Yasur), the shapes of the islands (shape of the country : Y), coconut crab, slit drums, the tribe warrior, the hunting bow, a dugong, scolopendra, cascades, flying fox, earthquake, blue hole, pure water, lava, etc. I've included some files but most of them are not licenced, it's only for reference.
One idea we had is to display some of those symbols in a kind of "lost paradise scene" that somehow make senses. You can check out the "Les sauvages de la mer du Pacifique", an old wallpaper from Jean-Gabriel Charvet for some examples. We are open to other ideas.
Typeface logo included in attached files (we are not in love with our typeface logo). Our bottle will be the shape of a regular bordeaux wine shape but clear. the label can occupy all the space or not, there can be more than one label (front+back). Check the reference pdf for detailed sizes.
